> Civil Rights Movement of 1957
The Civil Rights movement of 1957 would end up changing a lot of things in our country. In this picture you can clearly see President Eisenhower signing the Civil Rights Act of 1957. The Civil Rights movement was used to enforce that all African Americans would be allowed to exercise their right to vote. Even though African Americans had been granted the right to vote an entire century before, but many died and had to fight their way to cast a vote, therefore, only twenty percent of African Americans voted when this Act was passed. The Civil Rights Act of 1957 also established the civil rights commission as well.
